I have a daughter who has fits of anger and discontent personality at times. I was told as a child that I wasn't an angry baby or toddler, very sucky and loving and smiley - my daughter has the smiling side and loves to laugh.
Than from what I am told, my ex's experience as a child was that he threw tantrums all the time, totally discontent and if another child touched one of his toys, he would go and break every single one in the house --- fits of rage.
My daughter has the fits of rage, she throws herself down constantly, gets angry easily, slaps, hits, bites at at times.
I am not asking for anyone to tell me how to disciple a child like this- as I work very closely with her day care and we work together on managing discipline. My day care has never complained to me about it - Basically I am the one frustrated with this. Do you believe the genes in (anger, happy...etc) can be passed down?
My daughter is 18 months old.
